gem icon Sunrise Point Overlook

3 votes

Overview

This is the first point from which you can get a clear view of the distant mountains beyond as well as the South Toe Valley below. It is the perfect place to catch the sunrise if you get an early enough start at the trailhead; takes just over an hour to get to this point from the parking area at the base.

Short Run: About 1.8-miles from the trailhead parking area along the Woody Ridge Trail (177).

Minor Issues
Update
Mostly Dry, Some Mud: Lots of fallen autumn leaves make for slippery slopes as they cover moist ground underneath as well as the best footholds.
